Black Belt

Sega Master System

Game Description:

Hokuto no Ken is a game for the Sega Master System that was completely changed for western markets and retitled “Black Belt”. The game is based on a TV anime called Fist of the North Star (Hokuto no Ken).

Translation Description:

This is an English translation of Hokuto No Ken for the Sega Master System.

At last, the game is now fully playable in English as it always should. You’ll notice this is more challenging than Black Belt and way better than the NES game.

ROM / ISO Information:

  • Be sure to use the real JAPANESE rom (CRC-32: 24f5fe8c), the one that starts with the SEGA MARK III screen. The chinese dump is also labeled as (J), but is a BAD DUMP.

Terrific translation for a terrific licensed game!

Reviewed By: Venomrush1997 on 22 Apr 2020

As good as the localization of this game is, it’s just nothing compared to the original license. No spelling/grammar errors from what I can tell. The only thing I would say that would improve this a ton is if the title screen was edited to have the English logo to make it more authentic. Overall this was definitely a treat to Fist of the North Star fans, and to those who are looking for good licensed games on older systems.
